Stole a glass via Coravin and this one does not seem ready. Definitely getting the blue fruit flavors but little glycerin and hot taste that needs to air out. Huge wine. Will try again down the road — 7 days ago
Drank 12/30/19. Decent with a pork and red wine ragu.
Had this 2006 Magnum. Seemed like a nice opportunity to try the Coravin.
Nose initially showed notes of wild flowers and library book. The book notes blew off after around 30 min to show some red cherry. Flavors of red cherry and some spice notes. Medium tannins are well integrated at this stage. Medium finish. I dont see this improving at this stage, and may have already begun to decline in 750. I would drink now, but I will revisit via coravin in a few months.

Quite subtle, was hoping for a bit more expression but will let it unfold and see what happens. Edit: well, it was from the Coravin so of course was closed at first, 15 min later and I am hit with peaches, white flowers and a host of complexity on the palate. Bumped to 9.1 — 2 months ago
Off Coravin. Pale yellow in color lightly scented with pineapple, lemon and white flowers. Lemon, almond, and wet stone. Light oak balances the acidity and has a smooth finish. Better as it warms up. Cheers! #domainecoffinetduvernay #montrachet #whiteburgundy — 20 hours ago
I didn’t find it particularly interesting when I tried it with Coravin, but that’s because it’s a full bodied wine with high tannins that should be decanted. Today I’m tasting it with a stewed roast and it is delicious. Deep ruby color = #alicantebouschet #syrah and #touriganacional warm climate #alentejo medium+ aromas with ripe red cherries, ripe raspberry and red plums. Balsamic touches and on the palate it’s dry with medium acidity and medium+ ripe tannins. Medium+ finish. — 7 days ago

Nose was a bit stunted after first pouring from the coravin but still had nice, funky, earthy notes of fall leaves and forest floor. The nose opened up dramatically over the next hour, giving off a perfumed, floral bouquet, with hints of plum, game, and spice. Tannins are still firm but not overpowering. Palate hits you with slightly under-ripe cherry, plum, leather, and pepper. — 2 months ago
